The first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii 150 years ago are known as "Gannenmono".
It is because of the hardships they suffered and their resilience that Hawaii is a place where Japanese culture is valued even today.

This includes Japanese folk songs from Fukushima, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Kumamoto, and Okinawa, where most of these immigrants came from; led by the Japanese folk song "Hore Hore bushi", which was sung while working on the plantation.
This is the first album that expresses gratitude to all the Gannenmono and Japanese-Americans who have helped preserve the Japanese culture.
